Ask Mystic: Collective Zodiac Nouns?

Filed in Astro-Query

Mike Allred Heroes

Dear Mystic,

The other day, I was with some friends who were Leos, and they were talking about more Leos, and then we decided that the collective term for a group of Leos must be a Pride.  So I have been wondering about collective terms for all the Signs – maybe this is something you have already blogged about, but I didn’t find anything when I searched.

I am thinking a Pride of Leos, an Organization of Virgos, a Balance of Libras, a Nest of Scorpios (it’s ambiguous, perhaps deceptive, but/and it also fits with the Eagle and the Phoenix)…

Maybe your thoughtful and articulate readership can come up with a whole Zodiac Zoo of collective terms!

A Single Sagittarius

Dear Single Sagittarius,

We DID look at this a while back – i remember, because someone suggested “a guilt of Virgos” and then another person talked about something like a “a skulk of Scorpios” and it got a bit heated. But i can’t find that post now!  So yes, epic idea.  I love how a group of Unicorns is known as “a blessing of Unicorns.”

So, thoughts people…

Thanks Cal!!! I spied a whole knit in my kitchen the other day cooking together, one went of to crochet a beanie while the other two were discussing photography.

All this was a subtext to the actual powerplay which was a Game of Thrones kind of affair (to them at least).

A School of Pisceans is perhaps predictable but, I think, really fitting. Or a Pod of Pisceans! Or maybe just a Cry of Pisceans.

A group of cats is sometimes called a “pounce.” I like a Pounce of Leos.

A romp of Otters! A Romp of Scorpios?

An ostentation of peacocks…. perhaps an Ostentation of Capricorns?

A Troop of Virgos?

i love this…i always wondered what a group of Geminis would be called.

my mom, my younger sister and I are Geminis and I always thought butterflies and hummingbirds were our mascots… so i looked up the term for a group/collective of butterflies but didn’t like it.
a group of hummingbirds is called a charm, chattering, drum or troubling.

Charm of Geminis
Chattering of Geminis
Drum of Geminis
Troubling of Geminis

All are fitting…i knew the hummingbird was our mascot. what a lovely bird.

Ok going on my own observations it’s obvs a case of Pisceans or a ward of Pisceans. And a smug of Capricorns.

Oooooooo! This is grand!! How about a Romp of Sadgafarians? Party doesn’t have enough gusto for us. Although Quiver was my favorite. Everyone always writes us off as polyamorous partiers when many of us have personal planets in Capricorn or Scorpio that make us more than the randy class clown.

Having a Scorpionette reunion this week, in fact, with two of my favorite women. And one of my besties has a Scorpio ascendant in the same degree as my sun and her son’s sun – think we have some past life karma there?
There is always a lot of respect in Scorpio friendships. We know what lies beneath and that it’s not easy to be a haute Scorpion.

calypso

great explanation VR!

For me there’s something unwavering about those connections. For example, I’ve had amazing Aries women come into my life in a big way but at some point we reach impasse – I may still think they’re wonderful (well 2/3 of them) but the friendship becomes collateral in some unbreachable way. We then have to maintain love and respect at a distance. Not the Scorps, they are eternally wonderful to me and that fraternal love is forever 🙂
